First Hill

Perched above the Retail Core and Chinatown-International District, First Hill is regarded as Seattle’s first neighborhood where pioneer families established roots and left behind a rich history of classic homes, gardens and churches. This diverse neighborhood is also home to some the world’s most respected medical and research institutions, most notably Swedish Hospital and Virginia Mason Medical Center.
